PLDT myDSL or Sky Broadband?

Pretty decent

Pretty decent

Wow!

Wow!

 

I’m currently on a 15-day trial of  Sky Broadband. Even though my current plan with PLDT myDSL offers decent download speed, I get disconnected from their PPPoE server a couple of times a day. It’s very frustrating. I already called them to request a migration to the new DHCP-based servers but, according to the CSR, that’s not available in my area. So, when I found out that Skycable offered a free trial for their rebranded Internet service, I said, “Why not?”

This is the second day and I’m very happy so far. Everything seems to be faster and the connection is very reliable. Naturally, I got the trial plan equivalent in price to my current myDSL plan to ensure a fair comparison. My only concern is that, based on the test results above, the upload speed is much slower. Also, there’s very limited feedback online regarding the quality of Sky Broadband’s service, so I’m not sure how reliable the service will be once a couple of subscribers in my area get Sky Broadband as well.

Anyone here who has been a long-time Sky Broadband user? Your feedback would be most welcome 😉
